By November of this 2020 there is a probability that a asteroid enters the atmosphere and hits the planet land, according to NASA and the European Space Agency (ESA).
What many people wonder is if this asteroid that would arrive is dangerous one day before de presidential elections in the United States.
This object is known as 2018VP1 and was discovered by scientists at the Palomar Observatory in California two years ago. They consider it to be the second most likely asteroid to hit Earth in the next 100 years.
